    What's your version of SAP (HANA, at least 7.40 SP5?) you should perform some search with keywords like 'Search Help', 'Type-Ahead' and 'Fuzzy Search'.

      Hi Sayed

      I understand the requirement.

      I'm questioning the practicality of the requirement.

      How often will the user be maintaining this table? You need to balance this off the effort required to make this happen.

      If they're only maintaining the table a few times a year I'd seriously question the effort required to get this in place.

      From an SE38 functionality point of view I've never seem this successfully implemented. Perhaps as a UI5 or FIORI App this can be achieved with less effort.

      Educate the customer as to what can and cannot be achieved.

    Hi Sayed,

    if the user wants live update/search like in many websites, sorry, it's not possible as far as i know in ABAP.

    Otherwise, as per standard works, if the user puts 'a' and press F4 to get the available list, you have 2 choices:

    1-no particular logic, just external db key = sap manage it without a single line of code

    2-some kind of logic to apply in order to retrieve the list values = work with Selection Screen Events in ABAP - ABAP Development - SCN Wiki
